EndNote introductory online tutorial



EndNote is a tool which allows you to organise and keep track of your references, and easily insert them into your research documents as in-text citations, footnotes or a bibliography in any of a large number of citation styles. This online tutorial helps you to get the most out of EndNote and make your research easier.

  • Insert references manually into EndNote
  • Insert author names according to the rules of EndNote
  • Choose the correct reference type record
